Plexiglass sheetWorking with Plexiglass
We have assembled literature from the databases of our suppliers: Arkema's PLEXIGLAS (Plexiglass), Cyro's ACRYLITE, and Plaskolite's OPTIX brands of acrylic sheet.
Acrylic sheet (Plexiglass, Plexiglas, Lucite, Acrylite, Optix) is a combustible thermoplastic. Precautions should be taken to protect this material from flames and high heat sources. Acrylic sheet
usually burns rapidly to completion if not extinguished. The products of combustion, if sufficient air is present, are carbon dioxide and water. However, in many fires
sufficient air will not be available and toxic carbon monoxide will be formed, as it will when other common combustible materials are burned. We urge good judgement in
the use of this versatile material and recommend that building codes be followed carefully to assure it is used properly.
Like other plastic materials, Plexiglass acrylic sheet is subject to crazing, cracking or discoloration if brought into contact with incompatible materials. These materials
may include cleaners, polishes, adhesives, sealants, gasketing or packaging materials, cutting emulsions, etc. See the Tech Briefs in this series for more information,
or contact your ACRYLITE Sheet Distributor or the CYRO Technical Center for information on a specific product.
